Question
My 17 year old son had a mild concussion two weeks ago during football practice. He is now having night sweats, and sometimes sharp pains in his left frontal lobe. Is this something to be concerned about?

Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I would like to reassure you that your son's current symptoms do not point to any serious XXXXXXX brain injury.

These symptoms are transient and mostly resolve on their own in a few weeks.

Analgesics such as ibuprofen may be used, if pain is troublesome.

There is no need to worry at present. If symptoms persist for long, a CT scan of head may be done.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology) XXXXXXX Consultant Neurologist
